    Are you saying that drinking alone = having a drinking problem?

    Or why do you think that she is doomed to fail?

    Aha, so you are the one that has been drinking on my behalf all these years. People around me started to wonder why I never touch a drop of alcohol anymore.

    Now do this 20 more times and then you may succeed, with my track record. I eventually just gave up and allowed it, but only one drink a day. Every couple of weeks to a month, I might drink more than that. It's working better than it ever has. I haven't blacked out since Halloween of last year. And, my S.O. is cool with it. He rarely complains, so I think it's near passable. As time has gone on, I've become more of a happy drunk. I used to get drunk and become angry and attack people, now I just act silly, and it's actually difficult to make me angry when I drink. That's a definite improvement.

    You're doomed to fail when you talk about quitting, whilst finishing off a bottle. "Last one! Promise."

    A lot of alcoholics (and addicts) will tell you that they all still think about drinking - but they remain vigilant at each urge. It's a daily thing (and maybe with a little luck, a weekly thing). If you don't get into that kind of mentality, the urge will just take over sooner or later.

    Sure you arent projecting your complexes here?

    I mean there are plenty of reasons why someone non addicted would do the same thing..

    My complexes? Not exactly. I had a different path, I think. I had to bottom out to take issues like this seriously. The urge becomes that much more distasteful when everything turns to shit.

    Here, I'm offering more of an opinion gathered from listening to other people's stories. In fact, I was just listening to the radio the other day about addicts (and their recovery stories). I also dated an alcoholic (who didn't quit.. not sure how she is now). My dad's one as well. Nuff said.

    Complex = feeling toned associations around a common theme.

    In this case the theme that has the feeling toned associations around it would be addiction.

    Projection is when you are seeing things in others that are actually in your own head and not in those other people.

    So let me rephrase. Are you sure that you arent applying the image of addiction that you have in your head to prplz? Because it partly matched the image of addiction that you have, without having anything more than just a really small fraction of commonality with prplzs situation. Also are you sure that this small commonality between prplzs situation and your image of addiction couldnt be explained with something else? For example she not being addicted really and just want to have a break from drinking, but not seeing the break from drinking that big of a deal that she would want to throw away half a bottle of whiskey? Or some other reasons like this?

    Ps. Im not claiming that its impossible for her to have a drinking problem, just seeing it unlikely and seeing other more likely reasons for this.
